Grain, shadows, highlights—getting the right film look hinges on how these three elements are handled. Last week we explored how to build film looks in DaVinci Resolve; this week we’ll look at the same process in Adobe SpeedGrade—an excellent color grading tool that’s particularly user–friendly and intuitive. Joining Rich and me again this week is colorist Patrick Inhofer, who’ll walk us through his personal techniques for achieving a film look in SpeedGrade using footage from a recent music video shoot.
• The tools needed to create a film look in Adobe SpeedGrade
• The recipe for creating a “bleach bypass” film look
• What a LUT (look-up table) is, and how LUTs are used in SpeedGrade to color grade footage
Watch this week’s free videos above and check out the full episode on lynda.com to give your next production a professional, stylized “bleach bypass” film look with Adobe SpeedGrade. Check back next week, when we’ll look at ways to control your camera wirelessly in a fresh set of DSLR Video Tips.
